STICKY FINGERS by Joe Hagan

STICKY FINGERS garnered a very favorable review in the New Yorker & New York Magazine this week, with Amanda Petrusich in the New Yorker calling it “crisp and cutting… terrifically smart and full of anecdotes that anyone remotely interested in rock and roll, publishing, or the legacy of the nineteen-sixties will find engrossing.” Critic Christian Lorentzen wrote in New York that ““Hagan’s biography is a colossal achievement of reporting and synthesis, fast-paced, compulsively readable, and consistently insightful.”

The book is also an Amazon Top 100 Book of the Year, a Best biography of 2017; and a Best history book of 2017. It was also an Editor’s Gift Pick. The book was also central to “The Lust in the Heart of Rolling Stone,” a feature in this week’s The Atlantic, where Spencer Kornhaber wrote of it: “The book is obsessed with the tawdry, but more importantly it is moralist, examining Wenner’s exploits as if to put on trial an entire generation’s hypocrisies. It’s a particularly potent moment for such a reckoning.” Knopf published the book on October 24, 2017.
